What does it mean to Act FAST? In the stroke community, it means recognizing the signs of stroke (Facial Drooping, Arm Weakness and Slurred Speech) and acting on them in a timely fashion by calling 911. In our daily lives, however, we can Act FAST by raising awareness of stroke's warning signs throughout our communities and across the state. Enter the Act FAST Running Team!

The Act Fast 97,000 mile challenge is intended to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle – the cornerstone to stroke prevention – while honoring the 97,000 Minnesotans who have sustained a stroke in their lifetimes. The goal is to get Minnesotans to run, walk, bike, hike, swim (or any activity you can measure) 97,000 miles by the end of 2014.
